What you will learn:

These paintings use a combination of wet-in-wet and wet-on-dry methods.  We study how to see tone and how to use this in your painting to create form and light.

The first video has voiceover instruction on the principles involved.  The second video has no voiceover and allows you simply to enjoy watching the process develop using the techniques learnt in the first video.
